I have sorted out five different PDF creators for you in this article. These free PDF creators allow you to create PDF’s of documents, excel spreadsheets, images, HTML files and PowerPoint presentations. You won’t need to download software specially for creating PDF’s. These online web apps are useful as it won’t take up space in your computer and in some of the cases will also receive the converted file in Email. The Email option is great because it ensures the availability of your converted PDF file even if your computer crashes. Most of these online web apps will covert your file in a click. It won’t take a lot of your time. Some of them are paid after a limited amount of usage.
You can have a look at the PDF creators reviewed by me below: PDFConverter, ConvertImagetoPDF, PDFCrowd, PDF24, PDF Convert.
Using this PDFConverter you can convert documents, excel sheets, presentations online. You can just choose the file you want to convert and enter your Email address and convert it in a click. The best thing is you can access it anywhere. You won’t have to go through the installation process. The limitations of this app is that at a time you can upload only 2Mb file, no password protection and you have to provide your Email address everytime. You can try it out and see how it works for you.
As the name suggests you can convert images to PDF files. You can upload from your disk or you can outsource from websites. It supports most of the well known formats such as JPG, PNG, GIF etc. However again there are some limitations such as you cannot batch convert your images, you will have to convert each of them separately which will take away a lot of your time. You can also download the converted file in your PC. It will come handy, you can use it and see for yourself.
PDFCrowd is a free application for creating online PDF of web/HTML. You can make web pages to PDF as well as HTML to PDF. You can also customize the page dimensions and margins using this application. You also have the liberty to customize the headers and footers according to your choice before the file is generated. You can also perform secure HTTPS conversions. It has the availability of API for major formats like Java, PHP, ASP etc. It has a simple interface and you won’t face any problems accessing it.
PDF24 is a free online application which converts documents into PDF files and then sends it via Email. It converts documents like Microsft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Powerpoint, Open office, Postscripts, Text, HTML, images. It is an all in one application. You won’t have to use any other application specially. But then again the limitation of this application is that it only sends the converted file via Email, which limits the file size being sent. Other than that it works fine. You can try it out!
PDF Convert is an online application that converts various files into PDF and also vice versa. On the interface you will find tabbed list of online conversions supported by the application such as PDF to Word, PDf to Excel, PDF to Powerpoint, PDF by Email. However in this application the option to send via email is optional, so you can always choose to avoid it. This application also has its set of limitations like you cannot convert files simultaneously. You will have to wait for 30 minutes for the next session. Also for unlimited conversions you will have to be a member, for which you need to shell out money. So it is not entirely available for free. However, you can still give it a try if you want.
All of the above PDF creators have some benefits and limitations of its own. You can pick the one which suits you the best. Feedbacks are always welcome!
